Hi! My name is Noorah Kareem. I’m 22 and I’m half Saudi, half American, living in Riyadh and I have a desire to do great things. I’m a dreamer, a hard worker and I love being an artist. I love having my own personal language that I can destroy, create and tell stories with…
I would love to be an art therapist because then I can combine my passion for art with my desire to help special needs children or even people who have gone through difficult or traumatic experiences. I want to help make this world a better place and use every drop of talent I have to achieve higher goals.
Someday I’d like to publish my own series of children’s books. I like to think about all the zany characters I could create and thinking like a child is not that difficult for me!
